For Kinetica Art Fair ’10 and the unique Musion Eyeliner 3D holographic projection system Cybersonica have selected a line up of exceptional audiovisual talent drawn from previous Cybersonica Socials – our irregular live showcase – and AV Lab ’08 – our week-long residential creative & practical workshop.

The Kinetica Art Fair provides collectors, curators, museums and the public with a unique opportunity to view and purchase artworks from leading international galleries, artist’s collectives, curatorial groups and organisations specialising in kinetic, electronic and new media art. Kinetica’s aim through the fair is to popularise artists and organisations working in these genres and to provide a new platform for the commercial enterprise of this field. Alongside the fair there will be special events, screenings, tours, talks, workshops and performances. These events will involve some of the world’s most eminent leaders in the fields of kinetic, electronic and new media art.

An annual celebration of electronic music, sonic art and audiovisual experimentation, Cybersonica is a key destination for anyone interested in the theory and practice of how new technologies are shaping and changing the way musicians, digital artists, audiovisualisers and creative software developers make and present their work. Now in its eighth year, its rolling programme of collaborative events and projects brings together a vibrant community of sonic and audiovisual innovation, nurtures new talent and showcases the freshest and latest work in the field.

Cybersonica have been regular collaborators with Kinetica Museum since the co-curated SoundWaves sonic art exhibition in 2007.

Widely recognised as pioneers of VJ culture, D-Fuse are a group of London based artists founded in the mid 90’s by Michael Faulkner who explore a range of creative media – from art, architecture, photography and film to live AV performances.

Scanone creates intelligent and sharp beat structures reinforced with heavy bass, emotive synth lines and sci-fi fx… a sound that borders a myriad of underground genres. His work has featured on numerous short films, animated sequences, TV adverts, soundtracks, scores and live performance for events.

Voice controller Kristi delivers edgy electronic grooves and live, gutsy vocal FX merged with the evolving and surrealist imagery of Oddscene .

PRICKIMAGE vs MURPHY is a fresh collaboration fusing the the kinetic and potent visuals of moving image artist Barry Gene Murphy with the irreverent, full of fantasy, humor and intrigue visuals of Prickimage .

NEW YEAR NEWS


January 5th, 2009 | Posted in News

After a bit of deliberation over the Xmas and New Year break we’ve kinda decided to put Cybersonica Social on the back burner for a bit. It’s winter… brrr… and folks aren’t too sociable when it’s cold.

Like the snowdrops we’ll peek our heads out again in the early Spring – perhaps at the Kinetica Art Fair in late February? More news to follow.

We’re sorry to announce that due to the ill-health of the organiser we’ve been forced to cancel the Cybersonica Social Xmas Party. It’s a real shame – but what can you do?

An unfortunate webhosting fiasco forced the Çonic Social website offline for most of June and July. :-(

As a result it’s badly in need of an update – so expect before too long, posts on:
V0.3 ROUND-UP
ÇONIC SOCIAL V0.4
V0.4 ROUND-UP

In fact we’re taking a break through August and September but restarting in October – the second Thursday of every month – and at a lovely new venue – The Flea-Pit, 49 Columbia Road E2 7RG.

To launch the Çonic Social autumn season we’re participating in Spitalfields Opens Up – a long weekend of arts activity in and around Spitalfields over the weekend of 27-28th September – having being invited to join in by our good friends Kinetica Museum who are launching their own unique programme of arts and education events for autumn and winter with a day of live, impromptu performance and demonstrations by sound and electronic media artists in Bishops Square, Spitalfields E1 on Sunday 28th September, 11am onwards.

Watch this space for more details.
